Join Little Critter® as he learns why it's important to be kind and treat others as you want to be treated instead of selfishly taking the first turn.

Since 1975, Mercer Mayer has been writing and illustrating stories about Little Critter and the antics he stumbles into while growing up. Tommy Nelson is thrilled to bring this beloved brand that humorously portrays social and emotional issues that kids face to the Christian market with faith-based books featuring Little Critter.

In You Go First, Litter Critter loves being first?even if it hurts his family and friends. After several mistakes, Little Critter learns that the secret to getting along is treating others the way he wants to be treated?which, in Little Critter's case, means letting someone else be first.
